“Don't bother with the rest these guy's are the BEST !!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

I have been living and working in Gibraltar for the last 4 months and with different friends been out with the other Dolphin boats, which to be honest were average and seemed to find them by pure luck and a last ditch effort, before they had to give us a return ticket. Well on Sunday 30th September 2012 I went on the BLUE Boat !! not only was the field rep polite and funny, the whole crew were just as good and I have to say for the first time of heading out on the boat felt I was in the hands of a crew who new where to head the whole journey and experience was awesome. The staff were knowledgeable and even got the Dolphins to try and play a hard task for a wild animal. overall all I can say is if you want to see Dolphins in Gibraltar please do not waste your time or money with the other companies and head straight for the guys in the blue shirts....

Once again to everyone involved with this company Thank You and please don't ever give up the fight against the yellows they are nothing but bullies !!

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Having never seen a dolphin before except for on the tv, this was too good an oppurtunity to turn down.
The staff were all very helpful and polite on arrival to there office and during the trip.
In my eyes £25 is very good value for money for what it is.
It took around 10 mins to get out to where they were and then we were surronded by them, jumping out of the sea and coming right up to the boat.
They then sped the boat up to see if the dolphins would surf the wave, which they did.
An amazing experience and a good chance for some photographs.
Would go again if I ever find myself near Gibraltar

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

Very professional outfit. Ensured we saw loads of Dolphins we were very close up and as they pointed out, it is only with this company due to the size of their boat that they could encourage the dophins to surf the waves caused by the movements they made within the water. Would totally recomment anyone do this trip it would not dissapoint.

“Amazing and stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

We took my daughter for her 3rd bday. Unfortunately she slePt through it as recovering from a bug.
My husband and I really enjoyed it and would def do it again. Seeing dolphins in their natural habitat was awesome beats those shows where they do tricks all day long for peoples entertainment The crew were really helpful and informative and clearly loved what they did.
A definite must when visiting Gibraltar

“Essential!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

I was on holiday in the Costa Del Sol and had heard about The Original Dolphin Safari on here. So I thought I'd give it a go and I am so glad I did. Fiona and the team were extremely friendly and welcoming telling me about the other areas in Gibraltar as I had arrived early. The trip itself was in my opinion quite fun! Others commented it was scary as we did get quite wet but that was because of the condition on the waters, there is a cabin however. We didn't see too many dolphins as they seemed to be going deep under water but I must stress that they are Wild, they don't have a diary!

Even so, they are majestic creatures and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend so highly that I would say that it is essential. Book online and you will get a 10% discount! Much better than the S.S. Sardine Can (the yellows).

I recommend it so highly that I would say that it is essential if you are visiting Gibraltar or even the Costa Del Sol as a coach service is available.
